I took a class at one of my local cake supply places on pressed sugar... but she painted all of our stuff with an airbrush... which doesnt give it the details that i want...
how can i paint the pressed sugar ... can i paint it with a brush and gel food coloring?
i want to know bc i am signed up for the next TD and i want to add some of the pressed sugar stuff that i made, but want to paint some details on them...
help .... please and thank u
I am not sure. But, I would make some pieces and let them dry over night and then try it out. I would make sure my color wasn't too wet (usually you mix the gel color with a bit of water or vodka).
Sorry... haven't tried it yet.
I've done sugar molding and added details using RI after they are dried. I've tinted my water before I molded the items. Do you add meringue powder to your dry sugar before you mold? Supposed to add strength. HTH
Sorry, forgot. If you really want to paint I'd try using (thick) gel color on a pallet with a brush. No liquid. And you won't contaminate your gel color by dipping in it and sugar.
I also would like to know how to get more detail on the pressed sugar. Were you able to try the ideas and did they work?
